Things That Make Me Smile

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

This should really be titled, "Things that make me go YUM!"
Every October I have to have this stuff.
Just during October.
Not before.
Never after.
It just screams fall.
It is so yummy.
But, my hips will never thank me for it.
Nope. It certainly does not fit into one of my healthy alternatives.
Hey, you can't win them all!
Meet my October addiction:



Candy corn, pumpkins, and dry roasted peanuts.
I have spent the last couple of weeks in detox.
I am all good now.
Until I come face to face with a pumpkin pie...

Yum! My favorite fall snacky is peanuts, butterscotch chips, milk chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. Talk about yum! :) And I love the new bloggy look!

Those would be single serving containers around here. I love the sweet & salty taste of that mixture.

YUM-O! I love candy corn and the pumpkins, but I've never thought to pair them with peanuts...GENIUS! It looks like your ready for a visit from Goldilocks, uh, I'll try the large jar on for size. Thank you.

He & Me + 3 said...

Don't they taste like a pay day when you eat them together? Love the jars.

Oh, just what I need to read about when I am fighting to keep what weight I have lost...off! :-) It looks yummy, esp. with the peanuts! I don't really care for candy corn but I do think the peanuts would make it MUCH more appealing! :-)

No I don't like candy corn, I don't like candy corn.... Sorry that song from Nick Jr's Moose A. Moose stuck in my head. I really don't like it though. But put pumpkin pie in front of me and NOBODY else is getting any. Love the new header!

Looks yummy!

I have a new fall addiction, too...pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. The downfall? They're 4 bucks for a SMALL! No worries on overindulgence - I'm far too cheap for that.

Okay, I'm caught up! I have been away from bloggyland for a LONG time. That's what havin' a baby'll do to ya...

I was glad to catch up on your life. I miss my 'friends'.

Oh, and it took me many nursings throughout the night to do my catchup, so...if you have a stats thinger that says how long people are on and it says, say 9 hours, don't worry - I'm not a freaky stalker. Just a mom - a tired, up-all-night, nursing mom - checking in on her friends.

My weakness around this time: Pecan Pie. I adore it....

Boy Mom said...

Yum, how did I miss this post? I never miss something with candy corn and peanuts, NEVER!

Mummy McTavish said...
